Standard Handbook of Powerplant Engineering
by T. C. Elliott, 1,232 pp., 1997, ISBN: 0070194351
     The first edition of this authoritative handbook established itself as the "bible" for engineers and technicians working in industrial and utility powerplants.

Now extensively revised and updated, the Handbook includes the latest technical information and data on systems and equipment that plant personnel need to ensure efficient, uninterrupted powerplant operations.

More than 40 contributors have polled their expertise to make this the most current and comprehensive reference in the field available today.

Standard Handbook of Powerplant Engineering - $129.95 each
